Centre takes control, local politicians sidelined

Srinagar: Jan 21: Centre sending 36 union ministers to Jammu and Kashmir to kickstart the so called development projects across Jammu and Kashmir seems to be a hint that local politicians have been sidelined and they will have to prove their loyalty to indian occupation before being re-inducted into the system.
The Central Ministers reaching out to the people in different areas is a clear message that the Government of India wants to manage the newly carved out Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir in its own way.
An analyst while talking on the centers move said, “It looks like that Centre has made up its mind to ignore all the political parties of Jammu and Kashmir.
An observer said that the local politicians will have to prove their loyalty to Indian occupation before they are once again given an opportunity to make their presence felt on the ground. “Till now, Delimitation Commission has not been constituted. It means that assembly elections won’t be held in the J&K UT for some more time,” he added.
The observer said, “The government has tightened its noose around the Kashmir centric politicians and a few leaders have already fallen in the net of the anti-graft agencies. Recently
He said that leaders sitting in New Delhi have already made it clear that Kashmir centric politicians, who have amassed assets disproportionate to their sources of income, won’t be spared.
Another analyst said, “It looks like that the Centre has already defined the broader contours of how to handle Jammu and Kashmir. Leaders from Jammu region too seem to have an uphill task at their hands. It won’t be easy for them to tell the Centre that they are the only options. The times have changed completely and message seems clear that only people who accept aborgation of Article 370 and Indian occupation, will be entertained as all the rules of the games stand altered.”
